I've heard that these contests that Troy gets involved with are pretty crazy.
I know I heard about this somewhere recently, is this in St. Martinville or somewhere?

But that last rule, seriously, I wonder what happened to make them include that one in. Do people really stuff like that in real life?

They have stuff that makes your taste buds do a 180° flip. Check out miracle berry.

Miracle berries only work for sour stuff. I imagine a plastic coating on the tongue would be what theyre worried about

Talked to Troy last night about this, going to make a pass by and hopefully get some seeds from him.

Quite disgusting to think someone would go this far to win. The smell of condoms alone isn’t pleasant.

That was fun. I chose to split the winners pot with a guy who was only competing because his daughter was a queen in the festival and she signed him up. He told me he was going to go pepper for pepper with me no matter how hot it got, just for his daughter.

Troy has made some killer strains of plants. His bbm and 7 pot were some of the later round equalizers. Unruly hotness aside, the peppers themselves were gorgeous looking. I look forward to growing his varieties soon.

Agreed, although I didn't try the competition I hung around with Troy and his wife after.
Straight up good down to earth people that cant be beat.

And yes i agree. He and his wife are very down to earth. It was my first time every meeting them.

I would love to have a sliver of their plant knowledge.

Pretty safe to say you got the real thing when the man himself hands it to you.
Also that one you thought was a 7pot was his new Louisiana Creeper he is working on.103e7e305255fcf9781f5640ed2da3f2.jpg

I should've went to check out the festival to see if it would be worth setting up as a vendor.

 

I was busy playing with some 7 Pot Primos making salt and dehydrating some.

I'll be making some BMM salt next picking. They're just starting to kick in.

Here's last weekend at Sugar Mill pond market. Everything from pepper jelly, mirlitons, salsa, chow chow, candied jalapenos, jelly, preserves and soon to start adding more spicier items. This is my sisters gig she's been doing for 25+ years, I'm just here to grow peppers, be a guinea pig taste testing hot stuff and labor helping her set up or sell if she can't make a festival or market.

I wasn't in the contest, the OP was and I think the creeper was the last one they ate. Troy had extra after the contest that he was letting people eat, but not leave with any.

The event was small and nice, just weather came at the end.
